Video Premiere: Common Sage – “Think About the Desert”

Posted: by The Editor

In 2011, a band called Balance and Composure released a record called Separation on No Sleep Records. In 2021, a band called Common Sage released a record called It Lives and It Breathes on No Sleep Records. It Lives and It Breathes is perhaps the closest I’ve heard another band come to recreating the magic that Balance and Composure captured on Separation, and in the ten years in between a lot of bands have tried. It’s the perfect mix of heavy and melodic, grungy and poppy, gritty and clean.

Today, I’m excited to share that we’re premiering the video for my favorite song on It Lives and It Breathes, very possibly my favorite song Common Sage has ever released. It’s the raucous, biting “Think About the Desert,” a perfect showcase of the poles that Common Sage can dance between. Check that out below, and check out the band’s new merch line.

It Lives and It Breathes is out now on No Sleep Records.
